The F. W. Woolworth store at 8207 Oak Street was gutted by a suspicious fire on April 30, 1969. Also damaged was the adjacent Disabled American Veterans store. More than twenty-five NOFD units worked to control the blaze. No injuries were reported. A large part of the Carrollton area lost electrical power as a result of the fire.
